Sweet Treats Party for Petunia Pickle Bottom! *Giveaway*

Hi fabulous readers! Today is a super exciting one at Pizzazzerie! We are so thrilled to be partnering up with the oh-so-chic Petunia Pickle Bottom! After receiving the Cosmopolitan Carryall in black forest cake, I became instantly smitten with the clever designs, stylish looks, and fabulous options from PPB! So smitten, in fact, that the darling team at Petunia Pickle Bottom and I decided to partner up for a giveaway and sweet treats party! With one of their collections perfectly known as “Cake“, it was only fitting to serve up some sweet cake alongside a giveway for all of YOU!

I fell in love with their Spring 2014 collection which includes the Captivating Corinth print. The gorgeous aqua-green and yellow is so perfect for “spring”, especially after such a cold and dreary winter. And GUESS WHAT?! We’re so excited to be giving one lucky reader a City Caryall in Captivating Corinth print AND (I know, it gets better!!) the Beginnings Book in Captivating Corinth too! One lucky mama will win both of those items, woohoo! Throw that confetti! Details on entering at bottom of post…

Lemonade is an easy drink that is sure to please your sweet-eaters! Jazz up your glasses by tying on a coordinating ribbon and a flower garnish!
